Ok, so this isn’t strictly paleo. Chocolate, even at 85%, is not paleo. It’s got sugar in. I don’t care. This is one of those better-rather-than-best options: better than shovelling in the Ben & Jerry’s, not as a good as eating an apple. You can’t win them all. This is a very serious, not for […]

chickmush broth final

Confession time: I’ve basically invented a paleo chicken & mushroom pot noodle. I didn’t necessarily intend it to come out that way, but in fact it seems to work quite well – it’s got the same flavour principle of bulking up on umami to deliver a bit of excitement, but my recipe adds a bit […]

roast beef cropped

A couple of weeks ago we had pork, and now we’re on to beef. Once again there’s a full complement of paleo sides to go with it, but do feel free to pick and choose as you see fit! I think I might also have discovered through developing this recipe that roasted cauliflower is one […]

All the cool kids seem to be doing some kind of year review at the moment, and I didn’t want us to be left out. So in a quick snapshot, here’s a quick run down of how we spent our 2013… …Neither of us blogged very much, but despite this the number of people visiting […]


Cooking honestly does not get easier than this. Almost so easy it doesn’t merit a post! You can vary this recipe as much or as little as you like to suit the contents of your fridge. It’s adapted from a dish my mother used to cook, although I think that had potatoes and some sherry […]

meatcook part 3

If the last post in this series was about flavour, it makes sense that this one is all about texture. I talked about texture in a general sense in part 1, in terms of balancing a need to keep tender muscle fibres and breaking down connective tissue. In part 3 I’ll focus a lot more […]
